  1. I'm going to enjoy this one, thanks Dragofer. Haven't properly delved into it yet, I've just been wandering around the harbour soaking up the atmosphere. It really captures the feel of a small, decayed port at night. And it's good to see another fine Atkinson Grimshaw painting at the start.
  2. This is a problem with some missions and that one in particular. I fixed it by opening editSounds in the console, then getting very near one of the noisy lights (you may have to use noclip) until its name appears, left click action, then turn its volume right down to -10 or similar. Then click "save map" and return to the game.
  3. Thanks Joe, it's an enjoyable mission. Nearly finished but I can't work out
  4. Apologies for the new thread as this subject is presumably covered in detail here but there are so many threads it's hard to find my way around. I have a useful repertoire of accents and pretty good dramatic skills, and have often considered getting involved on this side of things. I also quite often think of new incidental utterings for the guards and lords etc, to add a bit of variety to the stock vocals. I have a little recording studio here, with Cubase Artist and good quality microphones. If someone could provide links to what I have to do to produce usable audio files for Dark M
  5. Enjoying this one, a very atmospheric setting with the seemingly endless marsh and giant castle creating quite a unique mood, while still evoking some of the flavour of classic Thief. It's a good long mission that builds a quietly sinister tension. My only criticism is: Anyway I haven't finished it yet, so I'd better get back down there.
  6. OK, I've looked up cavador_8's walkthrough, and solved the problem. What confused me was:
  7. The Black Arrow, I've read the thread and it's a complex issue. Bikerdude was a very helpful contributor who nonetheless had some particularly bad habits - extensive editing of other people's maps without their permission and with no warning of his intentions (sometimes requiring many hours of remedial work to undo his unwanted changes) plus copying chunks of other people's maps without permission, and failing to stop repeating this sort of behaviour after many complaints and warnings over a number of years. Apparently he agrees that he was at fault and accepts his banning as the most sensib
  8. Enjoying this one and personally I love the wide open spaces. But I would have liked to see more furniture in the mansion. I have a problem in the sewer:
  9. Sounding a critical note here, reflecting my own experience but perhaps resonating with other TDM players. There are some missions that create excellent atmosphere with all the visual elements and most of the sound, but then spoil the immersion with gratuitously ugly and intrusive sounds. Perhaps the most obvious example is that awful moaning/shrieking drunk personage often used as "background colour" in various urban corners, seemingly taken from a real-life recording of some tragic low-life street altercation. It completely ruins the game for me and these days any mission that thrusts
  10. Beautiful atmosphere in this one, thanks grayman. I hope we get to explore the Warrens again, with more buildings open for interiors. I'll be peeping in to the diseased waterfront again some time to enjoy a glass of wine and a picnic while listening to the seagulls
  11. "Fred and Adam We're queer! We're here! Because of it!" What's that supposed to mean? Does TDM endorse homophobia?
  12. I suppose I was just confusing TDM with Thief fan missions, in which my saves have seemed to survive various upgrades over many years.
  13. Damn, I didn't know that. That's a pretty major drawback. Anyway, ta for filling me in.
